Monica and Larry found no place good enough for their honeymoon. Even NYC and Paris paled in comparison to the amazing experiences they had had on their space flights. They decided to build “Heart’s Desire,” a satellite city.
Money was no problem; they knew the rudiments ofasking for government grants. Thus “Heart’s Desire” was founded.
Government lost thirty billion dollars. Only fifty-seven couples ever passed NASA’s physical test. Monica and Larry called it quits. Monica married the architect and honeymooned in Houston. Larry married the receptionist and honeymooned in Phoenix.
Taxpayers shelled out thirty billion.

Awake you, Beauties,
In night’s breezes you will sway,
dancing night away.
Ronovan, my haiku this week does not include the words “open” and “closed.” When I saw the words, I thought of four o’clocks, then my mind went down a different track. And sure enough I went astray. 😀 But I liked where your prompt took me, so I’m submitting anyway.
I was wakened at 1:15 and became aware of a gaseous odor. I got up to check it out and found a kitchen stove gas knob on. That was a lot of gas that filled the house from the stove to my bed! I apparently had accidentally turned the pilot on when I washed the stove at about 10:00 or so. Join me with a special shout out to Jesus for waking me. Would have been so easy to have gone to eternal sleep instead!
Psalm (121:3) “He will not let your foot slip – he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber not sleep.”
Remember the childhood prayer? “Now I lay be down to sleep, I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to keep, And if I die before I wake, I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to take.” May be that that is a good prayer for all ages.

Jesus (Matt 10:20) says, “the very hairs of your head are numbered!” I’ve heard folks poke fun at that statement by referring to God’s “hair-counters,” pointing out how ridiculous it is to literally believe the Bible. Joking about keeping count of a new hair or a lost hair.
Many are kinder. They think it is just a legitimate exaggeration. Poetic license used to prove a point.
But I say Jesus may have been giving a very scientific statement. That Jesus, the Creator, is also a master scientist. Science has finally caught up with “numbered hair” in the last decade or so. What he said was proven by what science has discovered regarding deoxyribonucleic acid—DNA!
Don’t we all have genes that show whether we will have thick hair, thin hair, or maybe be bald? Wouldn’t that be marked by a DNA number? **
I’m not smart enough to understand all that, but makes sense to me. I get a thrill out of knowing God designed all the little details of our bodies. How beautifully and wonderfully made, we are!
Luke 12:7 But even the hairs of your head all have been numbered. Fear not; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
